The North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Laschet had recently been elected as the new CDU chairman. He prevailed against the former Union parliamentary group leader Friedrich Merz and foreign politician Norbert Röttgen at a digital federal party conference.
Merz and Röttgen had “initiated important debates in the party” in the past few weeks, Wegner said. “For me you are still among the leaders our party needs. I would like both of them to join Armin Laschet’s team as team players. “
The Berlin CDU chief spoke in his statement of an exciting and fair competition. A year ago he spoke out in favor of Merz as federal chairman. Wegner has headed the Berlin regional association since 2019.
The member of the Bundestag wants to run as the CDU top candidate in the next parliamentary election.
